English Standard Version Anglicised
4 Behold, you fast only to quarrel and to fight
and to hit with a wicked fist.
Fasting like yours this day
will not make your voice to be heard on high.
5 (A)Is such the fast that I choose,
(B)a day for a person to humble himself?
Is it to bow down his head like a reed,
and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him?
Will you call this a fast,
and a day acceptable to the Lord?
6 “Is not this the fast that I choose:
(C)to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps (D)of the yoke,
to let the oppressed[a] go free,
and to break every yoke?
- Isaiah 58:6 Or bruised
